VALE, N.C. - Holly Lawing Steele, age 63, of Houser Farm Road, Vale passed away from this temporary life on Friday, October 8, 2021.
Her soul immediately entered into Paradise to be with her Redeemer, Jesus Christ, and many friends and family who have gone on before her. What a joyful reunion they must be having!
Her “Celebration of Eternal Life” service will be held on Saturday, October 16, 2021, 2 p.m. at Harvest Church, 710 Lithia Inn Road, Lincolnton. Pastors Scott Deneen and Ivan Davis are officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until 1:45p.m. at the church prior to the service.
Holly was born on May 14, 1958 to Polly Boggs Bryant and the late C. B. Lawing. She has devoted the last 43 years to being a wife; the past 37 years added motherhood to her devotions, plus grand motherhood for five years. Holly has also been a craftsman and artisan since she could use a crayon, we feel certain. She has specialized in stained glass, then in creating beautiful Christmas “Glitter Cone” ornaments for about the past 25 years.
In addition to her service to Christ with her family and creative gifts, Holly has served her Lord Jesus with great zeal and passion for the entirety of this millennium, in various ways, from VBS craft coordinator (of course!), to Children’s Sunday School coordinator, to Missions Team Leader. These are just a few examples of how Holly loved to be used by her Abba Father, as guided by the Bible and the Holy Spirit, for the glory of Christ Jesus!
Holly is survived by her husband, Fred Steele of the home; her mother, Polly, of Lincolnton; two sons, Eric Steele (Sarah) of Charleston, S.C. and Keane Steele (Laura) of Summerville, S.C.; three sisters, Yvonne Modlin (Nathan) of Lincolnton, Millie Propst (Perry) of Lincolnton and Lyn Owen of Lincolnton; five grandchildren, Aliette, Logan, Lincoln, Jaxson and one grandson on the way; and numerous nieces and nephews.
